Quilt With Us

Earlier today I wrote on someone's page that their loss of their best friend was so much like the loss of my Mother (which by the way, not remembering WHO I wrote it to has been quite frustrating for me because since Mother was promoted to glory, my memory is pitiful! a friend told me, "Oh, Rindy, that's part of the grieving process," and I keep thinking my memory will get better, but it hasn't)... well, this evening I got an email from my father and he sent this link that I want to share with you, written by one of Mother's friends from church...

This is my Mother, my best friend...
Mom, I miss you so much.

Well, I'm still trying to figure this out... if I reply here, does Edith Lean, Prairie Quilter, Mary Rogers, and Marla Southers get to see what I reply to them? or do I have to go to their page and answer? Not even sure if this will show up somewhere or just stay here on my page. :-/
Thanks for your help... whoever you may be. ;-)

What a beautiful tribute. I still miss my mom and she will have been gone 20 years this coming August. I have tears in my eyes writing this. There is not a day I don't think about her. I just hope that my daughter and son will feel about me that way when I am gone. That was always my biggest goal in life was to be the best mom I could be for my kids. I sure haven't always succeeded but hasn't been because I haven't tried.

Oh Rindy, my heart aches for you in your loss. We all know your Mom has gone home to glory, and what a wonderful day that was for her. But for the loved ones left behind it is a loss that leaves an ache in our hearts, never to be filled until we see them again in heaven! But isn't it comforting to know that she is always around you in spirit and also in the lives of every other person she touched somewhere along the way? When the sadness tries to overtake you, just close your eyes and open your heart and there she is!

What a moving tribute. The great joy is the hope we have in being reunited with her someday. I know that doesn't help how much you miss her now, but hopefully the gems like what's written in this story will encourage you and brighten your day a little bit between now and then. Hugs to you. PQ

What joy it must be to have such memories of you mom. A true testament of our Lord working in our lives.

Thank you Linda; Thank you BJ...
When she first started going into prisons and I'd go out to visit her (I live in TX, she lived in CA), it took a couple visits before I FINALLY realized her "service for the Lord came first" and then she'd get back with me when she got back home later that night. LOL! well, I learned to accept it.

I agree with Barb, what a lovely tribute to your mom! What a gift you had with your mom. Not all of us have had such wonderful relationships. You have such good memories of a Godly mother who put others before herself. I can understand why you miss her so much. Your mother sowed quite a harvest while she was on this earth. Many seeds were sewn and the harvest is still coming in. Oh that we all would leave such a legacy for our dear Lord!!
